. it was great. it was unscripted. it was almost a pure moment. sheila jackson lee connecting with regular working people, and a doctor, no less. you know, that's what town halls are about, not this conjured up hired activist g.o.p. fake angry yelling thing. what is it they were calling it, again? oh, yeah, i remember, astroturf. that's it. that's crazy. when i first saw this video, i was so moved by the concern of this obviously amazing physician. i thought, you know what? she's only been a physician for four years. she might be struggling. i don't know. she says they're a dying breed. maybe i should recommend her to my friends in texas. they tried looking her up and i had a hard time finding her. she was really tough to find, really, really tough, very. almost like she wasn't really a doctor tough. as it turns out, she's not a doctor, no. she's not listed in the medical records or the texas board or anything. she made it up. sheila gave her that big old spontaneous hug. what are the odds? anywho, since roxana is not a doctor, she is not as busy as a doctor really is, i wondered what does
